Because I have nothing better to do with my evening than to be a completely nerdtastic fangirl (and because I just plain need more people to fangirl over him with) ...

Guess maybe I should participate in my own meme, huh? :)
Name: Caileigh

Age: 21

Place you live: Small-town Ohio, USA.

When did you first 'discover' him? Only very recently did I begin to really love him, but he's been a 'presence' in my life for awhile - starting with Dracula, pretty much, then the Harry Potter movies. :)

What are your favorite Gary films? Despite being on a Gary-watching spree atm, I haven't seen all of them -- my favorites so far would probably have to be Immortal Beloved and Dead Fish, and then of course the Harry Potters are always awesome!

Favourite G.O. character(s)? Okay, let's think here ... Beethoven, Dracula, Lynch from Dead Fish, Stan from The Professional, and he is absolutely heartwarming as Rolfe in Tiptoes <3

Other favorite actors/actresses? Mark Harmon, Robert Sean Leonard, Jeremy Irons, Alan Rickman, Hugh Laurie, Helen Mirren, Joan Crawford, Katharine Hepburn to name a few. :)

Other fandoms you're in: House MD, NCIS, The Tudors, classic film (film in general!)

What do you do in fandom (if applicable)? (eg., write fanfic, vidding, etc): I make icons/graphics and occasionally try my hand at fanfic, but I haven't seen one through to the end yet, lol.

What do you look for in an LJ friend? Oh, not too terribly much -- easygoing, laid-back folk who are not judgemental and like to fangirl as much as I do (or at least don't mind me doing it! LOL)

Your journal status (public, friends only, semi-friends only, etc.): Friends Only

List three facts about you: I share a birthday with my grandpa, I have met Dixie Carter, and I've seen Cher in concert twice (not that that's a huge deal compared to some of the things people have done, but it's been a highlight of my sad little life! :P)

Your favourite Oldman quote (from films or personal quotes of his)? Oh man, I feel like I fail for not having seen some of his stuff (or seeing it enough times) that I can pull quotes off the top of my head -- "I've crossed oceans of time to find you" does stick out in my mind, though. *siiiiigh* :)

Anything else you'd like people to know? Not really! I'll just say add away, I love new friends! And then if you want to know anything about me, just ask! :)
